Chief Operating Officer, Link Housing
With a career in social housing spanning over 20 years, Margaret is currently the Chief Operating Officer with Link Housing, one of the largest metropolitan community housing providers in Sydney. Prior to joining Link Housing, Margaret held a series of executive management roles in Housing NSW and then Family and Community Services, including Housing Director in various Sydney regions, General Manager for Greater Western Sydney and Director, Service Improvement Central Sydney. Margaret has led major initiatives in community and estate regeneration in some of Sydney’s most disadvantaged and difficult housing estates. Margaret’s earlier work experiences in the fields of homelessness, domestic violence and drug and alcohol support services have led her to understand the profound importance of stable and affordable housing. This, she believes is both a fundamental human right and a foundation on which people can rebuild their lives and reach out to opportunities.
